Album Notes
elephant are a six piece acoustic band based in Cork, Ireland. Formed in October 2002, the band have played venues throughout Ireland and beyond during their short time together. Their debut album 'in the moon' was released in 2005 on well known Cork singer-songwriter Niall Connolly's c.u.records label.

The elephant sound has been described as "unlike anything on the Cork music scene" (Evening Echo) and "miles away from what any of their contemporaries are doing in the currently fertile Cork scene" (whisperinandhollerin.com) . Positive reviews of the debut album refer to the songs on the album "superb, heartbreaking pieces of work" and an album which is a"thoughtful, well-crafted debut from a band who are truly different from the norm" (whisperinandhollerin.com).

God Help the Elephant or Go Away Elephants
Great music from Catherine Ireton of the Go Away Birds and God Help the Girl. Jazzy, heartfelt pop.

Witty and fun
Straight out of Cork: armed with witty, insightful lyrics and an upbeat sound that evokes elements of 60’s folk mixed with peppy modern folk groups like The Decemberists and Belle & Sebastian, this album has a clean, full mix and plenty going for it. With lead vocals from Catherine Ireton, who recently collaborated with Belle & Sebastian leader Stuart Murdoch on the “God Help the Girl” project, the vocals are the clear highlight of many of the songs, while the occasional violin or trumpet help spice things up in the instrumental department. The song titles alone get bonus points, plus jaunty folk pop with the occasional expletive is sure to ruffle a few cardigans. And that’s a good thing. While this style might not be the first sound the comes to mind when you think of Irish music, this is fun stuff and worth checking out.

Elephant - Replacing the Man In The Moon
A fusion of Jazz, Folk, and a little Pop, it's hard not to like Elephant, especially with the vocal crooning of Catherine Ireton. I'd love to hear their take on some old Jazz Standards, with their own folky little twist. If you like witty lyrics complemented by great vocals and well-placed instrumental stylization, I highly recommend this group. The total album run-time seems a bit short, but it's mostly because the songs are upbeat and leave you wanting more, which is a good thing and means I'm hooked! Favorite tracks are definitely, "If You're Lucky You'll End Up With Someone You Don't Hate," "Goodnight," and "Gordian Knot." This album is the perfect pick-me-up for a good day, bad day, or honestly, any day. Show Elephant some support and check this album out!
